was struck by a wave and pulled into the water. turns out he was drunk. the ugly, a deer's entire head stuck in a doritos bad. the deer let a deputy remove the bag. >> good news. "fox & friends" starts right now. >>gretchen: good morning. it is monday, june 10, 2013. hope you had a great weekend. i'm gretchen carlson. thanks for sharing your time. the n.s.a. whistle-blower steps out of the shadows, and what he has to say is shocking. >> any analyst at any time can target anyone. i sitting at my desk certainly have the authority to wiretap anyone from you or your accountant to a federal judge to even the president. >>gretchen: but this morning we want to know from you, is he a hero or a traitor? we report. you decide. >>steve: meanwhile, this respected doctor accused of poisoning her lover's coffee with antifreeze.

no, it isn't a movie plot. it's real and can be deadly. details ahead. >>brian: a pint-sized surprise with a major voice. ♪ oer the ramparts ♪ we watched ♪ were so gallantly ♪ streaming >>brian: live up to that, lebron. no one could put on a better show than that. her performance of our national anthem will blow you away. you got a sample. you'll get more because "fox & friends" on a monday starts right now. ♪ ♪ >>steve: welcome to the show on this monday. 6:01 in new york city. when was the last time there was a case where there was a national -- some sort of -- where people are running around going who did it and a guy
3:02 am
says you're looking for me. i'm edwin snowden. i spilled the beans. i tried to spill it to "the washington post" but instead "the guardian" got the goods. >>gretchen: he planned this thing. he left his hawaii home with his girlfriend and that job, about three weeks ago went to hong kong. knew he would be somebody the world would be wanting to find relatively soon. he went to "the guardian." >>brian: he talked to "the washington post" first and then thought i'm going to go to the guardian. he thought this reporter could see more eye to eye on him. on wednesday the reporter breaks about the n.s.a. expanding their phone tapping. then we find out on thursday and we reported on friday the prism started, talk more about e-mail, photos, yahoo and the servers that come through the u.s. used by the n.s.a. to better track terrorists
3:03 am
and stop the next attack before it happens. this is exposed for the first time. the national intelligence director james clapper says it is a major deal. the compromise has been tremendous. this guy is the person that is the one who did it, and he's proud of it. so it's going to be hard to build a caseor his innocence. in fact, he doesn't want to be innocent. >>steve: he's looking for asylum right now, a country he says that values free speech. the reason he says he spilled the beans is he says the united states is destroying privacy and basic liberties because our government, spy apparatus has gotten so big, so powerful. listen to him describe from hong kong on who the government can watch. >> any analyst at any time can target anyone. any select tor anywhere. where those communications will be picked up depends on the range of the sensor networks and the authorities that analyst is empowered with. i sitting at my desk certainly have the
3:04 am
authorities to wiretap anyone from you or your accountant to a federal judge, to even the president if i had a personal e-mail. i had access to, you know, the rosters of everyone working at the n.s.a., the entire intelligence community and undercover assets around the world, the locations of every station, we have what their missions are and so forth. it i had just wanted to harm the u.s., you know, you could shut down the surveillance system in an afternoon. but that's not my intention. >>gretchen: he could have also sold all that information for money. then he officially would have been a traitor. but he decided not to do that. the question for me this morning is what is the difference between mr. snowden and bradley manning? remember bradley manning was the one who released all the documents from wikileaks. he was former hr-ly in --
3:05 am
formerly in the army as mr. snowden. >>brian: he says there was a difference. he told about the program. bradley told about the specifics. >>steve: he says, mr. snowden, does, he does not intend to release a pile of documents unedited like bradley manning did. he doesn't want is to enable what he called the bradley manning argument that these were released recklessly and unreviewed. meanwhile bob bair who used to be with the c.i.a., he said u.s. intel officials are considering the case as perhaps chinese espionage. >>brian: remember, he might go to china. >>steve: he is in hong kong which is controlled by china. why did he do it? here is mr. snowden once again on why he leaked and his biggest fear. >> i think that the public is owed an explanation of the motivations behind the people who make these disclosures that are outside of the democratic mold.
3:06 am
when you are subverting the power of government, that's a fundamentally dangerous thing to democracy. and if you do that in secret consistently, as the government does when it wants to benefit from a secret action that it took, it will kind of give its officials a mandate to go hey, tell the press about this thing and that thing, so the public is on our side. but they rarely if ever do that. that falls to individual citizens. but they're typically maligned. >>brian: you know what bothers me about the whole thing is that he is a private contractor. and of the 1.4 million people that have access to all this material in order to better keep us secure as the objective, a third of those people are private contractors. so they're not necessarily signed up by their own company. but if you're a government official and you've been trained for this process, i'm fine with that, and i trust that they will have the integrity to use it for
3:07 am
the right reasons. but if you're a private contractor and you're talking about hundreds of thousands of people, i don't know who booz allen is hiring. i don't know who these other people are hiring. now they have all access to all these other things. he's making $200,000. it's a lot of money. if somebody is making $75,000 and can make a ton of money for having the same access on their desktop, they can say a russian approached me for gretchen carlson's records. >>gretchen: i agree with your point and it is scary to consider how many people have access to this information. the other thing, if you look back into mr. snowden's history, you find out he didn't graduate from high school. when he went into the armed services, he came out but he was so good at computers and technology, that's how he rose into the ranks of the n.s.a. and eventually into this organization,
3:08 am
booz allen. >>brian: my question is what else could he have done? if he feels this way and he's sincere, let's take things as they are. was there another option for him? if he goes to the house committee, they're on board with it. they don't have a problem with it. if he goes to the senate, he actually is a supporter of rand paul. for me, i would go to rand paul. >>steve: there is a process for in fact coming up in ten minutes, five minutes we're going to be talking to a guy who was at the n.s.a. and was a whistle-blower. he went through the proper channels and went before congress and said this is how they're screwing things up over there. meanwhile mike mccall, homeland security, says these leaks are a serious violation of our national security. >> this is the kind of thing that, while some may applaud the person for doing that and it will give us a chance to provide additional oversight into what the administration is doing, i do think in terms of when you look at
3:09 am
national security law, this is a serious breach and a serious violation. >>gretchen: it's not only mike mcca you l. it is dianne feinstein, democrat from california. they think there will be charges and a serious crime has happened here. i think it's interesting there's bipartisan support for this, that people are coming out against it. on the other side of the fence you have rand paul who says the n.s.a.'s actions are unconstitutional. >> we're talking about patrolling through billions of phone records. we're not talking about going after a terrorist. i'm all for that. get a warrant. go after a terrorist or a murderer or rapist. but doesn't troll through a billion phone records every day. that is unconstitutional. it invades our privacy. >>steve: here's the thing. what we've learned in the last month or so with the i.r.s., remember all that data was supposed to be secret too and yet somehow some of that stuff of mitt
3:10 am
romney's allies wound up in the hands of the obama allies and was used to discourage and discredit them. can you really trust the government? that's the problem for a lot of people. i saw in one blog today we're supposed to trust the people who spend millions on opposition research simply to get elected. >>brian: question of the day: is the whistle-blower a hero or a traitor? where do you go from here? and if you say okay, he's a hero, what's going to stop all our leaks from coming out? we're going to hail everybody that leaks a hero? >>gretchen: you know who i'd be interested in getting their opinion on today? president george w. bush because he started the patriot act, and he believed in needing to do this kind of activity to keep our country safe. the question today is has it become more extensive under president obama? that's the question for me. because let's face it, both presidents have done it. so is this just an example of going too far now? or will president bush also
3:11 am
agree with this right now? >>steve: if he's watching right now, call us. thank you, w. >>gretchen: let's get to your headlines. a developing story, one of the nation's most respected cancer doctors accused of trying to kill another doctor who was also her boyfriend. they worked at an cole gists at -- oncologists at a cancer center in hugh son. police say dr. gonzalez gave dr. bloomen stein coffee laced with antifreeze. he was rushed to the hospital. gonzalez arrested. she'll be in court today to be arraigned. u.s. troops under fire in kabul, afghanistan. taliban fighters armed with guns and explosives clashed with security forces after taking over a building near the airport in the afghan capital. they reportedly had rocket propelled grenades and a bomb.

two blew themselves up. police shot and killed the other five. no americans hurt. the young girl waiting for that lifesaving lung transplant under sedation this morning. sarah murnaghan having serious breathing problems. she was put on a respirator on saturday. the family says they have hope she will get the lung transplant. >> now that we have a much better opportunity, i think she can do anything. she's proven it. how long, how strong she's been through this entire process. she continually surprises us on how strong she is. >>gretchen: later today the transplant network will meet to review their age policy. huge news from apple. they are expected to release news on a launch for the ipad. its last major product release was ipad mini in october. stick around because clinton morris is in california to give us the

3:18 am
how the united states government is spying on people in the name of keeping it safe? >> no, i'm not. not at all. they don't have to do that to get the bad guys in the networks. >>steve: do you trust the government with the information they've got? >> absolutely not. >>steve: why not? >> well, i mean, take for example my case, the d.o.j. tried to fabricate evidence to create a charge against me to indict me but i caught them so they dropped it. that's the only reason they dropped it. can you trust a department of justice that does that to people? i say no. if the justice department does it, i already know n.s.a. is corrupt. >>steve: what do you mean you already know the n.s.a. is corrupt? >> because of all the stuff they have been doing, unconstitutional activity. originally when it started it was in violation of the pen register law, the stored communications act, electronic privacy act, all
3:19 am
the laws covering s.e.c. regulations. so it's basically a violation of the constitutional rights of everybody in the united states. >>steve: yeah, but william, people are watching this right now and they're going we've been told by our politicians and our government we're doing this for your own good. what about that argument? >> no, they're doing it for their good so they can have information about people in the united states use it to control them. that's what the totalitarian states have done all along. that's why i said we're about that far from a totalitarian state. >>steve: the information the government really needs does not have to be as broad? because right now what they're doing is they are looking at every e-mail in the united states; right? >> that's right. i'd be glad to explain how you could do that. >>steve: please do. >> it is like a two degree principle. you've got a terrorist, somebody in the united states. that's one degree. the next degree is the communications that fellow
3:20 am
has internally in the united states. when you do that and collect only that and ignore everybody else in the country because that's not relevant, then you have the support network for the terrorist inside the united states, like finding a column inside the country. you watch jihadi sites and sites that promote that kind of activity and see who's going to them. you don't need to monitor everybody in the country to do that. >>steve: that's what they're doing all in the name of trying to keep us safe. >> the problem is the terrorists already know we're doing a lot of this any way, so collecting on u.s. citizens or having it exposed like this really doesn't do anything with the terrorists. they're already doing what they're going to do. it's really the whole thing is to keep it secret from the u.s. public. >>steve: and it was until last week. william binney joining us from baltimore, unique perspective from inside the n.s.a.

department of justice, and the s.e.c. to investigate for perhaps insider information. brian, over to you. >>gretchen: check out your screen. weapons like the one you see there were this close to being allowed back on united states flights, but after an airline uproar, the t.s.a. is taking back that decision to allow small knives on airplanes. >>brian: here with more is the former chief council of the federal aviation administration and author of "full upright in locked position." mark, i'm glad knives are banned again. did public pressure do that? >> i think the pressure of the flight attendance and the public and the airlines and pretty much everybody else had a real impact on the t.s.a.'s decision here. they came out with this decision early. they made an announcement. i think they probably underestimated the degree of reaction they were going
3:26 am
to get. >>gretchen: you still have to take your shoes off when you go to the airport. who would say i think we should let knives come back? >> on the side of the t.s.a., their view is they've got a mission and they're looking at a relatively specific mission which is to keep explosives from downing airplanes. they're saying penknives probably aren't going to do that. >>brian: you're going over things we're losing as customers. number one, leg room. number two, we're getting besieged by fees. to what degree? >> fees are a huge issue for the industry. bag fees and reservation change fees. these are making the difference between profit and loss for the airline industry now. they're saying we're a business. we need to make some money. they finally are making a little money but fees are the way they're doing it substantially. >>gretchen: it seems never ending. now you're paying for your pillow, blanket, food, headphones, being able to
3:27 am
board the plane earlier than other people. i'm thinking ahead, is this going to be a continuing process? >> i think it is. the next fee people are looking at is the fee to put your own carry on bag in the overhead bin. believe it or not, one or two airlines are actually going there. >>gretchen: meaning? >> if you walk on to the airplane and you have a little overnight bag and you want to put it in the overhead you're going to have to pay them. >>brian: unbelievable and you say leg room is decreasing? >> leg room not long ago was about 34 inches. basically now that's down to about 31 inches on average. some are down to 28 inches. which is the limit of human anatomy. >>gretchen: something for the high-challenged person that maybe i don't -- the height challenged person. also your pilot is armed. the no-fly list was at 16 back in 9/11/2001.
3:28 am
the no-fly list has expanded dramatically. before 9/11 we didn't have much of a list so things have become sophisticated. >>brian: as we watch these airlines go belly up or forced to merge we thought we might be getting a better deal. we're getting a worse deal and there is no one to bid these seats down. >> the question is what's in it for the traveling public now that the airlines are doing better and becoming more stabilized an more financially successful? in terms of seats, you can buy more space. they've monetized virtually everything on the airplane. if you want a few more inches you're going to pay for a few more. >>brian: the only answer to this is something i've been pushing for for a long time. jet-back. this way we can fly on our own with a jet pack. no airplanes necessary. >> have your helicopter in the garage. >>gretchen: if you could go above four feet which was his last experiment with it, mark gerchick

buffalo. you pack your car, go for an interview and wouldn't take no for an answer. your big break. >> probably one of the pivotal moments of my life. i got a call to go to buffalo. i go to buffalo, meet the program director and we go through the whole spiel about working there. as the interview end he says to me nice meeting you, kid, i'll let you know. i said let me know? i've got a 1980 buick outside and it's not going to go back. i swore to him i don't do drugs or drink and i need it. he said kid i like your attitude, we're going to give you the job. the moment of negotiating the contract came. i said i want to make $20,000 my first job out of khrepbl. he said we'll -- out of college -frpl he said we'll give you 12. i said 16 it is. i said kid i'll give you the weekend to find a place to live. thank god i found a retirement home with a vacancy home flashing outside and paid $95 a month rent.
3:49 am
for seven months i made $12,000 a year and lived in a retirement home in buffalo, new york. not very pretty. >>brian: this is the number-one station in the country and they have taken over for imus, a legend and have done better. they have been an anchor. the afternoon guy doesn't like you, mike francisa. how did you overcome the naysayers? >> good looks and charm. we do what we do. only pay attention to the people that like us. we come in every day with the goal being have as much fun as possible. that's what we've done since the day we got here. >>brian: i like the sketches, the story. i think america can relate to it. congratulations on your success. i know it's only the beginning. >> i appreciate you guys having me on. one day it will be maybe the brian and craig show of

fox. we can do that on a sunday morning. >>brian: i think we can do that. i have way too much free time. thank you very much. see you soon. coming up straight ahead, your child goes into diabetic shock but school officials not allowed to give them insulin. you can thank government regulations for that. veterans are having a hard time getting help from the fed. maybe to do union work instead of helping the vets. it'sout rageious. we'll discuss it so...

3:53 am
>> gretchen: welcome back. it's the back log of veterans claims at the v.a. piles up to crisis levels, a shocking new
3:54 am
revelation. almost 200 v.a. employees aren't working for our nation's heros at all. they're busy working on union projects. taxpayer expense. joining me to respond is best for america. this will get you steamed, pete. what's so crucial is we've been reporting so much in recent months about the back log did ae v.a. >> 188 employees since january 2012 have been doing official time union work instead of their position at the v.a. this is taxpayer dollars going toward them in those positions. we wouldn't know about this without congressional oversight, two senators sent a letter asking hard questions. how many people -- this is just what they found out through their own research. how many people are doing this. could be more than 188. what are they being paid? what are they doing? all of this while v.a. is failing in its core mission to serve veterans. the underlying question is, who should we be serving?
3:55 am
union interests or those who served us. >> gretchen: the workers doing union jobs that include nurses, accidental lab, security guards. so give us a sense what official time is versus actually working for the v.a. >> my understanding is that you're not doing your day job at v.a. sometimes at another location and it is advocacy on behalf of the union, union interests, employees. it might be related to your job, but not specifically as a nurse. the ironic part is 85 of those on official time is nurses, yet the v.a. is trying to fill jobs for nurses. without shining the light of this on things like this, you just see government growth and waste and excess. >> gretchen: probable will he would have gone unnoticed had it not been for the pack we're talking a lot about government waste in the last couple of months, and this backlog at the va. our people who served this nation are suffering because
3:56 am
they can't get their claims met for sometimes years. >> it's blood boiling. i don't do manufactured outrage, but this is real outrage. this is a department that should be serving our veterans day in and day out with a customer service approach. instead, they're treated like numbers, employees are taking union time to do other jobs. there should be accountability all the way at the top of v.a. starting with the secretary all the way down to do better for veterans. >> gretchen: all right. always great to see you. >> thank you. >> gretchen: is the n.s.a. whistle blower a hero or traitor? donald trump here is here to answer that. plus, an awesome welcome home. >> daddy! daddy! >> gretchen: two boys get the surprise of a lifetime. sorry. emotional. their dad is back home.
3:57 am
3:58 am
3:59 am
4:00 am
>> gretchen: good morning, everybody. it's monday, june 10, i'm gretchen carlson. the nsa whistle blower steps out of the shadows. what he has to say is shocking. >> it's getting to the point you don't have to have done anything wrong. you simply have to eventually fall under suspicion from somebody, even by a wrong call. >> gretchen: so is this guy a hero or a traitor? donald trump minutes away. >> brian: all right. she's one of the most respected cancer doctors. this morning she stands accused of poisoning her lover's coffee with antifreeze. >> steve: oh, boy. take a look at this. that's an apache helicopter doing death defying stunts. more awesome? guess who was behind the controls. that is gonna shock you. "fox & friends" hour two for this monday starts right now.
4:01 am
>> good morning, "fox & friends" >> brian: that voiceover. >> steve: i think that particular recording could be 15 years old. >> brian: right. most of those interns have retired. they have gotten jobs and since moved on. >> gretchen: they're collecting social security. >> brian: they've moved on. >> gretchen: i remember when i started the show, we did do those phone calls and i would sit here in a panic. we actually do this? it was fantastic, but you never quite knew what you might say. >> steve: the whole idea, what's america talking about. that's why we took the phone calls. now you just watch the show. we start with news. >> brian: and tweet. >> gretchen: we have headlines now. developing story. one of the nation's most respected cancer doctors accused of trying to kill another doctor who was also her boyfriend. they worked as con congresswomans in houston. the doctor gave another doctor two cups of coffee laced with a
4:02 am
chemical used in antifreeze. four hours later, his speech became slurred, he was losing control over motor skills and rushed to the hospital. the doctor was arrested and will be arraigned in court. u.s. troops under fire in kabul. afghan officials say suicide bombers tried to attack a nato headquarters. the taliban was targeting americans at the airport, one used by military force. they had robert propelled grenades, assault and i was a bomb. two blew themselves up, the police shot and killed the other five. no americans were hurt. young girl waiting for a lung transplant is under heavy sedation this morning. she's having serious breathing problems. she was put on a respirator on saturday. her family says they still have hope, though. she will get a lung transplant. >> now that we have a much better opportunity, i think she
4:03 am
can do anything. she's proven it, how long, how strong she's been through the process. she continually surprises us. >> gretchen: later today the transplant network will meet to review the age policy. soldier surprise. what will melt your heart. >> daddy! daddy! >> gretchen: these boys thought they were practicing the welcome home for their dad. he was due back from active duty next month but came home early. he hid in the back of that pick up truck and popped out when the garage door opened. his sister was in on the surprise. wow. >> steve: that's nice. very, very nice. >> brian: home at last. good tackle. let's talk about the situation with the nsa. we know two series of exposed leaks came out. one on wednesday, one on thursday. we found out about it all on
4:04 am
thursday. weather -- they and minuted all servers world wide, the biggest one is in the u.s. using that capability in order to screen through facebook, yahoo, and all major social networking sites in order to stop the next terrorist attacks using complex programs. a lot of people say wait a second. they're in my facebook, looking at my bills, at my phone numbers. way over the top. others say, wait, i remember when people were falling out of buildings because we didn't pick up signals and we had 3,000 americans die. and that's what we need to do. >> steve: a man who worked for the c.i.a. and most recently for booze alan hamilton outed himself yesterday. there he is in a hotel room in hong kong. he said he's outing what the united states is doing because the united states is destroying privacy around the world. here is mr. snowedden. >> even if you're not doing anything wrong, you're being
4:05 am
watched and recorded. the storage capability of these systems increases every year consistently by orders of magnitude to where it's getting to the point you don't have to have done anything wrong. you simply have to eventually fall under suspicion from somebody, even bay wrong call and then they can use the system to go back in time and scrutinize every decision you've ever made, every friend you've ever discussed something with, and attack you on that basis to sort of drive suspicion from an innocent life and paint anyone in the context of a wrong door. >> gretchen: he moved from hawaii to hong kong. he knew this information would come out. he allowed the guardian, which was the establishment that he gave his story to, to say who he was over the weekend. so what do you think? is he a hero or traitor? let's ask donald trump who joins us every monday morning to get his thoughts. good morning to you. >> good morning. >> gretchen: is the whistle
4:06 am
blower a threat to national security or is he an american hero in your mind? >> to begin with, i find it very interesting that he goes to hong kong to get a little security. it's a pretty strange going to hong kong. and frankly, i don't think you have any winners here. i didn't like him. to me, he looks like a grand stander. he's been there three months. i didn't like him. at the same time, i mean, that's a lot of information that people are getting, and that our government is getting. you say where does it stop? it's a mess. there is no question about it. i don't like him. i don't like what they're doing. >> gretchen: yeah. my concern this morning is i don't want our country to have infighting as a result of it. i fear that now the country is going to be separated on what they think about him, what they think about the nsa, what they think about how we treat terrorism, and do you have that feeling at all? >> i don't know that there is any answer. i'm as strong as it gets on terrorism, yet when you're just going into everybody's records
4:07 am
and you can go into an enemy's records that has nothing to do about terrorism, if you happen to be in government, you say where does it stop? so they're going far, far to too evasive. what they're doing is incredible. you're talking about hundreds of millions of e-mails and everything. so if they're going way too far, at the same time, you never like a guy like this because you blame national security. i guess he can claim it. but we can definitely claim it. what happens with him? >> brian: the way michael hayden explained it is, for example, you get someone who is in another country and you go through his pockets and you find a bunch of numbers and you plug it in and able to store this stuff because you get lines of passage because we have the unique capability thanks to al gore to keep the major servers in this country. we're using that to our advantage. >> i see it and i see it in trials every time you have a trial. they used to ask for a witness. now they ask for is e-mails.
4:08 am
everything is about e-mails. it's getting to a point where our lives are very different than they used to be. and i don't like people like this because there could be a national security concern and probably is. at the same time, what he's doing is really wrong and i think also what the government is doing is wrong. >> steve: sure. we understand there is a report out this morning that apparently this guy is looking for asylum. it sounds like he's got a couple of allies in the country of iceland. apparently iceland is his best option, his likeliest is prison. donald, it seems to come down to for a lot of people is when george bush started this program and the administration back then, it was just looking at phone calls between the united states and internationally. now it's all of our calls. it's all of our e-mail. it comes down to this: do you trust the government? because there are so many people out there, given what happened with the irs thing, they don't trust the government. >> it's very hard to trust them right now and you just said it.
4:09 am
if you really look at it, what's going on with other nations, how are they going to trust us anymore? this is affecting other nations, affecting their security. we're supposed to have relationships with other people in other countries and this is having a huge impact on them. i heard where they're extremely upset about it, they don't know what's going on. this is a real mess. it's got to be solved, but i'm not sure there is any very good answer. he's a bad guy, however. >> brian: i wish less people had access to it. according to his claims, he could have sold the intel for you or i or anybody else. i think yours will be more valuable, that's just me personally -- to anybody. he had that access. and the third of the people, of the 1.4 million that have this access are private contractors. so we have no control with these contractors who they are hiring. >> the big problem with the internet age and i've always watched and seen. in the old days you would have privacy. you would have real priefsly.
4:10 am
today with the computers, you press a button, you get brilliant computer geek who knows what they're doing and all of a sudden, everything is exposed. this wouldn't happen 15 years ago, ten years ago. we are on a very -- you talk about the cyber wars and everything else. we are on a very weak platform and it's very, very disconcerting. i sort of like to go back to the old days where you would write numbers down on the back of an envelope. >> brian: or put a cup next to a wall and see if you can hear the other room. >> gretchen: apparently that's how he rose through the ranks of the c.i.a. and also to this latest job because he didn't even graduate from high school, but he was so good in computers. i want to mention that there are politicians who are saying two major terrorist threats were thwarted as a result of these efforts, but you have to put that in perspective that the boston bottomer was not captured in this way. what do you make of the fact
4:11 am
that packagants taking away the bikinis. >> brian: would you give in to muslim sensitive at this times? >> probably you shouldn't just be there. there are other places. we have 18 different countries want to have the miss universe contest. you have a lot of choices for these. probably the easy answer is you don't go there. >> steve: would it be safe to say if donald trump is going to do a beauty pageant, people are going to be wearing bikinis? >> you can bet on it. >> brian: what about a best burqa? >> with the way the world is going, maybe that will be next. wouldn't that be beautiful? >> steve: donald trump, always a pleasure. thank you very much for joining us on this monday. >> thank you. >> gretchen: coming up, your child goes into diabetic shock, but school officials not allowed to give insulin. thank government regulations for that. >> brian: while you work, every penny you earn, a government official made $300,000 for doing absolutely nothing and she's smiling. >> steve: wouldn't you

4:16 am
more of the ridiculous red tape facing our nation. good morning to you. >> good morning, thanks for having me. >> steve: we'll get to that case in just a moment. but first, the long arm of the law has said no, you can not resell cribs, america. >> right. so i'm pregnant and as i started looking into it, i found out you're not allowed to resell cribs made before june 2011. the consumer product safety commission redid all their rules in 2010 and it turns out we've been putting our bundles of joy in death traps before that date. so you can not resell anything. if you have an heirloom crib that you hope to pass on to your children, unfortunately, you can't do that anymore. >> steve: you can't give it to them or can't sell it? >> you can't sell it, yeah. and you can't -- thrift store, anything like that, anything for monetary value. >> steve: so if my neighbor has a garage sale, i can make a citizens arrest? >> pretty much, yeah.
4:17 am
>> steve: that is crazy. all right. the case we were just talking about. in california, if a kid needs an insulin injection, there is a real problem for them to get it, isn't there? >> there is. as the laws in california stand right now, the only people who can administer insulin shots to diabetic children are licensed school nurses or parents or the children themselves. unfortunately, 26% of schools in california don't have a full time or part-time school nurse. that means if a child has a problem, the parent actually has to leave work to come and give that shot to the kids. so obviously this is something that's been challenged by the american diabetic association. this is a real concern because schools have wanted to train other school professionals to give these shots. the american nurses association has challenged this. that's why it's in court nowauso do so would jeopardize nurses' jobs, maybe schools wouldn't hire them. so it's not about the kids. it's about the nursing jobs. >> steve: the problem is so many schools don't have nurses and
4:18 am
there is the catch 22. let's talk about how uncle is involved in what and what is not pimento cheese. >> what ingredients, specifically it cannot ever, ever be spoked, can't have spices. pimentos are the only vegetable. but that doesn't adhere to the south. >> steve: why are they involved in that? >> why not? who knows? >> steve: yeah, right. as i look at the stories you covered, two involving children and one involving pimento cheese, are you having a craved? maybe. >> steve: maybe. all right. always a pleasure, thank you very much for looking at our crazy regulation nation today. it's now 18 minutes after the top of the hour. coming up, she's jen kerry's

>> gretchen: time for news by the numbers. from the control room, first, more than $330,000, that's how much california taxpayers paid dor knee dugger, a form general manager for the transit system without her working a single day for more than a year. she says she was owed the
4:23 am
vacation time after she resigned. 2200. salaried employees ford is hiring. also recalling 2,000 laid off employees. that's good news. finally, $36.4 million. that's how much "the purge" raked in at the box office this weekend. it topped "fast and furious." now back to brian. >> brian: she may have had some of the weakest credentials, but susan rice has the president's ear in her position. will rice push secretary of state john kerry out to political siberia? that is the theory behind lieutenant colonel ralph peters' latest column in the new york post. his book is out "hell or richmond." welcome back. >> brian, great to speak to you as always. >> brian: ambassador rice, people are on her about her talking points. you were on her about her credentials, her experience. >> yeah. she doesn't have a lot of on the
4:24 am
ground visceral, get muddy experience in foreign countries. it's book learning and politics. but that suits the president's style. for the president, politics are always more important than strategy. and you see he's a brilliant politician and terrible strategist. absolutely brilliant to move susan rice to be his national security advisor because it means she's now part of the executive branch, congress cannot subpoena her to talk about benghazi and also he's got a good loyal soldier who took a fall for benghazi, part of his inner circle, and the big loser, well, apart from the american people, is john kerry. >> brian: in what respect? he's still got his own plane and own gig and state department. >> he married his own plane. mr. american giggolo national security version. it's all about proximity and access to the president in washington. and susan rice is in the white house complex. she's an old trusted friend. john kerry was seen as something
4:25 am
of a frenemy. what's going to happen, on crucial national security decisions, that affect the favor of our country, susan rice will have the definitive voice in the president's ear. john kerry will get stuck with the loser missions like the kimera era. it's sad because at least john kerry did his homework. he and understand a little bit about foreign policy in the world. over the years he studied. susan rice is just a political hit woman. >> brian: wow. okay. let's move on. let's talk about the nsa and comprehensive program now with prism and everything being out there and being examined. we're discussing the breadth of the nsa program. you are take no prisoners person when it comes to the war on terror. how do you feel about it? >> show me one american, one law abiding american citizen who has been hurt by any of these nsa
4:26 am
programs. >> brian: none. >> none. they're keeping us safe. if they do this stuff, it's big brother snooping. now you got this 29-year-old high school dropout whistle blower making foreign policy for our country, our security policy, and the guy -- i think it's sad. you train your -- he cites bradley manning as a hero. i mean, we need to get very, very serious about treason and oh, by the way, for treason, as in the case of bradley manning or edward snowedden, you bring back the death penalty. >> brian: colonel, i think the -- i understand where you're going in that, but does it bother you he had access to what he said he had access to? there may be a -- a million people may have access to that. are you comfortable with that? >> no, i'm not. but the real problem here to me
4:27 am
is someone who worked in the intelligence world for decades is that this myth of outsourcing, saving the government money, has turned into a huge army of contractors working at the department of defense with their intelligence agencies. what happens is with not enough high-tech talent to go around, the contractors don't vet people, booze alan hamilton obviously didn't vet this guy very hard. so you get a guy, again, who is a high school dropout thug and has access to most of our secrets. we need to crack down on outsourcing because if he had been an nsa employee direct, they would have got him. he would have never got this far. >> brian: i hope so and i hope you're right about that. because he could be defecting to iceland or china. best of luck. >> good luck to him. >> brian: thank you. colonel peters, thank you for joining us. go out and get his book. well researched novel. thanks so much. >> thank you. >> brian: he left his cell phone behind and disappeared without a trace. coming up, the breaking details about the missing navy recruiter. then huge news from apple today.

4:54 am
to fight back against the disease. hoping to raise money and awareness, she decided to run 352 marathons in 52 -- 52 marathons in 52 weeks. she completed her incredible goal. julie wise is here with me this. wow. i haven't even totally heard your story yet and it's awe inspiring. you lost your father so quickly and pancreatic cancer is such a horrible killer. you wanted to do something to change that. >> that's right. when my father passed away, i was just devastated. i looked more into this disease and found that pan cratic cancer is the fourth leading cause of cancer deaths in the united states, estimated to go to the second if we don't have a cure by 2015. so i knew i had to do something and soy knew it had to be centered around my love for my father and passion for running. i set out to raise $1 million for the can creatic cancer -- pancreatic network and we raised

out for all to see how the national security agency is keeping all of our phone records and internet as well because the government has gotten too big in watching innocent people like all of us. watch. >> nsa and the intelligence community in general is focused on getting intelligence wherever it can by any means possible, that it believes on the ground as a self-certification that they serve the national interest. originally we saw that focus narrowly tailored as foreign intelligence gathered overcease. now increasingly we see it's happening domestically and to do that, the nsa specifically targets the communications of everyone. it ingests them by default. it collects them in its system and filters them and analyzes them and measures them and it stores them for periods of time simply because that's the easiest, most efficient and most
5:05 am
valuable way to achieve these ends. so while they may be intending to target someone associated with a foreign government or someone that they suspect of terrorism, they're collecting your communications to do so. any analyst at any time can target anyone, any selector anywhere. >> brian: 29 years old, he feels like he knows it all. while the people on the inside of the intelligence say this has gotten so big, so sophisticated, utilizing all our weapons, which is our intelligence, that they sometimes almost feel like they can predict the future, especially when it comes to afghanistan and the next attack and where it's going to come from. they also found the more data they feed in, the better information they get out. however, you might not feel comfortable with the fact that a lot of your stuff is going on. but just knowing the phone record side, all they're getting is numbers. on the other side, you have denials from google, facebook and a nonparticipation award to twitter. they say they're not part of this. >> gretchen: that's interesting because i think to a certain extent they have to say that because they're worried about
5:06 am
customer bases. well, if customers know that they were giving out the information, they may not want to be part of that. >> gretchen: what's going to happen to edward snowedden? he took off for hong kong. where is he going to end up? he's asking iceland to let him come in. there are some lawmakers on capitol hill who want to make sure that doesn't happen. they want to prosecute him to the highest level for releasing u.s. secrets. >> brian: the administration, does it really want to be in a situation for prosecuting someone for leaking information? that's what they're showing movement to doing. i don't think they have any choice. bret baier joins us. they're in a situation right thousand where the leaking is the number one story. you got another guy stepping forward leaking, but you can not allow someone to leak classified information and allow him to skate. you don't know what's coming in
5:07 am
your rearview mirror then. >> good morning. i think you're right. i think this is going to move forward with a prosecution and it's going to be interesting to see how they manage the extradition. it's a get this guy. he did that interview with the guardian in a hotel room in hong kong. the president just met with the chinese president, china overseas and essentially runs hong kong with hong kong authorities. do they track that guy down there? do they start an extradition process? this comes, of course, as the president is dealing with china trying to get them to stop hacking u.s. government facilities and businesses. it's multi facetted here. >> steve: and what's curious is, a little really curious, is the fact, bret, that you've got this guy's story coming out on the same day that our president is meeting with the top guy from china. yeah, it's a complete
5:08 am
coincidence, although bob bear, former c.i.a. guy, says the intel community is considering the case perhaps as chinese espionage. >> bob baer, no relation birks the way. >> steve: no. >> i think is a huge deal. you talk to intelligence officials and they think this is massive. they think it's potentially really damaging to their efforts to track down terrorists. you heard some of the lawmakers this weekend talking about the things that have been unclassified, threats that were thwarted by this program. on the flip side, you have a lot of concern that this is an overreach. and what exactly are they doing, the government doing with the data that is not just collected, but saved so that if you reason into a buzz saw with the government at some point, do they just tap a button and say, well, you searched for xyz on this date. >> gretchen: that's a great point. here is the other thing. it's one of the very few issues on capitol hill that i saw
5:09 am
bipartisanship yesterday. you had senator feinstein and congressman rogers, democrat and republican, together on this issue saying, look, we thwarted terrorist attacks as a result of this. however, a lot of people are saying, yeah, but you missed the boston bombing situation. if they're look at everybody's phone calls -- and hasan. you're looking at everybody's e-mails, millions of them, how do you miss boston bombing and hasan? >> i mean, it's like a needle in a hay stack. it's really billions. i don't think it's beyond millions. and i think you're piecing together different elements. how this program gets to all that data, i don't think we've fully understood yet. i do think that there is another side to this and you're right, the bipartisanship, gretchen, but senator rand paul is leading a big charge to get 10 million signatures to file a class action lawsuit against the government saying this is major overreach of privacy.
5:10 am
>> brian: and i know you're getting ready for "special report" around the corner, coming up, you have 12 hours, you'll look fresh. but here is the thing, these are one of these issues that go across party lines. not since the stem cell debate have i seen something this blended and this cross-partisan aisles. do you agree? >> i do in the concern. these are intelligence committee folks who have been briefed fully and they are saying this is a real concern. the democrat and republican sides. but i do think this opens a door to a libertarian kind of point of view that is very attractive to a lot of folks and think this might be really dangerous in the long haul with the government having all of this information, especially the searches and what you do on all those companies, google and facebook and twitter in the long run. >> steve: and there as you sit in washington, d.c., everybody in washington saying hey,
5:11 am
america, trust us. and there are a lot of people across the country who don't. >> yeah. and the president, you're right. they are in a tough spot. if they go forward with this prosecution, which again, it looks like they will, you run the risk of trying a guy that will be in some corners of the u.s. touted as a hero. >> brian: bret, we're going to watch you tonight on "special report" at 6. by the way, if they ever do a bret baier story like they did a bob bear story, i think you should have george clooney play you. that's my feeling. >> nice. i'm with that. >> gretchen: how can he disagree? have a great week. >> you, too. >> brian: straight ahead. >> gretchen: now that we know who the nsa whistle blower is, will he be prosecuted or can he continue hiding out in iceland? former u.s. attorney general michael mukasey with how far the government might go next. >> steve: and take a look at this. her parachute never opened sending her crashing into the side of a building.

5:43 am
they all may increase the chance of heart attack or stroke, which can lead to death. this chance increases if you have heart disease or risk factors such as high blood pressure or when nsaids are taken for long periods. nsaids, like celebrex, increase the chance of serious skin or allergic reactions, or stomach and intestine problems, such as bleeding and ulcers, which can occur without warning and may cause death. patients also taking aspirin and the elderly are at increased risk for stomach bleeding and ulcers. don't take celebrex if you have bleeding in the stomach or intestine, or had an asthma attack, hives, other allergies to aspirin, nsaids or sulfonamides. get help right away if you have swelling of the face or throat, or trouble breathing. tell your doctor your medical history. and find an arthritis treatment for you. visit and ask your doctor about celebrex. for a body in motion.

5:46 am
kids are assigned an arbitrary age and somehow we're asking for an exception, when what we're asking for is her to be treated on the severity of her illness and get the lung her doctor deems appropriate. that's like the government deciding what's best for her. >> steve: peter johnson, jr. did that interview there with the family in the hospital. >> yeah. incredible interview and family. what's happening today and janet posted last night that in some ways the intubation has been a win. the organs are moving along, and she says we're ready for the lung. she's been posting on facebook every day to keep people aware. today the executive committee of the organ transplantation board meets in response to what went on the federal court last week. my concern now is that the family has become victims of retaliation. the government is pushing back hard, that kathleen sebelius' folks in the government medical
5:47 am
bureaucracy are now saying oh, this should be based on medicine. this shouldn't be based on what this one family has been able to do and asserting constitutional rights and going to the media and pleading their case. they're saying it's about morality, legality of the constitution, and fairness for children. not about their ability to marshall evidence on behalf of this one child. in fact, they've taken up the cause of another child next door in the same hospital and all the kids who are dying as a result of this policy. >> steve: peter, you got to figure the organization which had guidelines, federal guidelines where okay, you can be on the adult list if you're 12, but not ten for the organization to have a judge second guess them, they're going, now wait a minute. we're the professionals. you pipe down. >> the family has become whistle blowers and they've suffered the price as a result of it. i contacted dr. sweet, who is one of the people that makes this policy as part of that board. yesterday i asked him two questions and these are the critical questions that they need to answer tonight. if a child's surgeon determines
5:48 am
that a child under 12 is physically capable of receiving adult lungs, why should the child be deprived of receiving such lung in accord with the same standards adults compete for such lungs? then i asked him a second question: do you acknowledge that the current system and protocols help cause a dramatic and disturbing disparity between under 12 and over 12 death rates for americans waiting lung transplants? he told me and said listen in later today. they can't answer these questions because they know that these are the critical questions that the ethical issues, the normal issues say why are you killing children at this rate and saving healthier adults at their risk -- to their detriment? >> steve: i have a feeling you'll be listening to their conference. >> i had a hard time getting in. the family's lawyer will be on the line pitching there.
5:49 am
i don't expect a lot. the federal court will need to step in and make this board really look at the science, which is back in the dark ages. >> steve: it seems to be. >> it's sad. >> steve: keep on it, peter. >> we will. >> steve: thank you. have you heard this? according to a top democrat, the irs scandal is over. >> based upon everything i've seen, the case is solved. >> steve: solved? leading republican is responding to that coming up next. but right now let's check in with bill hemmer for a preview of what happens in ten minutes. >> the hits keep on coming on monday. >> steve: they do. >> how much does the government know about you? how much will it know in the future? your health records, your voting records, your tax history. this is the debate that's developing around the nsa story. we'll talk to a whistle blower who was threatened with prison for life and what a story he has to tell. a leading democrat, steve mentioned this, says move on of the the irs story is closed. really? great line - up with the judge and karl rove and kevin mccarthy is in studio when

>> brian: did you hear this? a top democrat saying the irs scandal is over. >> based upon and everything i've seen, the case is solved. and if it were me, i would wrap this case up and move on, to be frank with you. >> brian: sounds good. >> gretchen: the attorney general for virginia and candidate for governor and i think he might disagree with that statement. good morning to you, sir. >> you know, i'm not sure there is anybody else in america, other than the congressman, who thinks this is over and solved. we're a freedom-based country and we're seeing an agency that is really attacking those principles and it's one that most americans fear more than
5:54 am
any other is the irs. i don't think this is anywhere near solved. there are a lot of unanswered questions and frankly, more of them are arising than being answered. so i think we have a long way to go in this and if for nothing else, to establish trust on the part of the american people, that the irs at least does its job objectively and fairly. they treat everybody the same. the evidence right now is quite to the contrary. >> steve: yeah. this morning we've been talking about trust regarding the nsa thing. you don't really trust the irs because they owe your commonwealth of virginia 125 million bucks. they know they owe you. and yet, they haven't paid you. >> yeah. we solved the largest health care fraud case ever investigated by a state. the irs did a small part of the investigation with us. we carried the investigation. part of the result of that billion and a half dollar case is a large asset forefifthur --
5:55 am
forfeiture is supposed to come to virginia, $115 million. it should have long ago been here. frankly, the interest alone on this money, which is set aside for law enforcement, could have bought 1,000 bullet proof vests for police officers and deputies in virginia. and they still have not sent the money. >> steve: what's their excuse? >> there is really no -- they haven't really given us one. the excuse we got from the department of the treasury was that irs wasn't doing their paperwork. as soon as we made that complaint last week, treasury gave us a number, but they're still holding up the money and adding new rules that we've never seen before for the money and we have a darn good money. >> gretchen: could it be because you opposed obamacare? >> and sued their epa successfully and done other things contrary to this administration. most people focus on the irs as it relates to the tea party. but a week or two ago we also heard about their additional scrutiny for jewish nonprofit groups that were taking attack
5:56 am
that was contrary to the obama administration's israel policy. and so when you see those of us on the other side of their policies and this administration, we're the ones who keep popping up having trouble. one way or another, ours was passively from the irs. those are why we have more questions than answers about the irs and it's why congressman cummings was wrong. there is a lot more yet to look at. >> brian: absolutely. and at the very least, there are so many questions and a lot of loose ends. we don't know where it will lead, but we know we have to find out. you're a tough attorney general for virginia and now want to be the next governor. thank you for joining us. >> good to be with you all. >> gretchen: more "fox & friends" just three minutes away we all have one. that perfect spot.
